The #blogjune 4 questions of the day

Via Paul Hargon   on Wednesday the 21st June, create a post answering these 4 questions.

  1. Who are you, and what do you do?

I’m Graeme Oke.  My job title is Coordinator, Research Advantage.  I am a Research Librarian at La Trobe University in Melbourne Victoria.  My prime role is to manage a team of Senior Research Advisors to support HDR students and research staff from the Arts Social Science and Commerce (ASSC) College. I also have a role in the support of Research Impact, Customised Searches, Research Data Management and I contribute to the publications data collection exercise. Additionally  I am involved in the development of the Research Commons.  I have been writing a little about the Viz Lab and the Research Commons during blogjune.   I also love to ride a bicycle and have blogged about that too.

2. What hardware do you use?

I primarily use a work Dell Ultrabook running Windows 10.  I use a hand me down S3 Samsung smart phone.

3. And what software?

Outlook for email.  Word, Excel, Microsoft Onenote, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WordPress for blogjune, UNITE/sharepoint to access work stuff, I tend to use multiple browsers for different purposes Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer.

4. What would be your dream setup?

I think I would love to be able to work from home if I desired to.  The commute to and from work I find draining.  Think I am most productive in the early morning so would like to be able to just push myself early and then relax and go for a bike ride in the afternoon.  At times I have applied and aspired to be further up the hierarchy but that doesn’t seem to have eventuated.

    Hi Graeme

    I work from home one day a fortnight and very much change my hours around to allow for outdoor time. I work a lot early and late, and have done concentrated time outside across a long lunch break.

    Plus your post has reminded me I didn’t list Instagram on my post (which maybe shows I’m not that committed to it).

    Thanks Ruth

  2. I forgot WordPress! And completely didn’t even THINK of browsers, isn’t that odd!
